We received confirmation from Croatia Airlines that the airline will not use A319 aircraft on routes to Brac Airport in this summer season. The bigger aircraft was planned on charter flights from Graz and Linz, as well on regular flights from Zagreb.
The airline planned to increase the capacity on the mentioned routes, since the agency requested more capacity for the charter flights from Austria to Brac Airport. The agency, on the end, decided to keep the existing capacity (76 seats per flights with DashQ400 aircraft). Croatia Airlines planned to use A319 aircraft on the Zagreb - Brac route (aircraft repositioning) and than on charter flights to Austria, but that will not happen this year.
